NEW DATE for The UnUsual Suspects Holiday Arts & Crafts Festival

We were just informed that The Anastasi Room was double-booked and, due to circumstances beyond our control, we got bumped. The UnUsual Suspects Holiday Arts & Crafts Festival will now be held on Saturday, November 1, 2008. Same place, same time.

If you've already submitted your application, please check your e-mail for important information about your application. If you haven't yet applied, well, what are you waiting for?

The deadline to apply has been extended to October 1st! If you wanted to apply but weren't available on the 2nd, you're in luck! Hopefully, everyone will still be available, and having the show on Saturday instead will actually bring in more traffic!
